    Hi everyone, we just bought 8 chicks 2 weeks ago and are very excited. We have been reading posts here non stop and can't wait to learn and watch out chicks grow.

    G’Day from down under muddy812 [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you and the little ones all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
